Challenge: Design and implement a field-level remediation plan using cased-hole SET® Solid Expandable Tubular technology to facilitate production restoration.
For years, the reduction of tubular inside diameter (ID), or “telescoping effect,” limited the exploration and production of oil and gas. Using conventional technology, operators faced significant loss of ID in the course of the normal drilling process, during reentry and deepening of existing...
During initial completion operations on a deepwater subsea oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, the 7-3/4 in., 46.1 lb/ft casing failed the pressure test in the production liner. Subsequent operations located the casing leak 1,800 ft above the target completion intervals. The original completion was...
Implement an ESeal solution that would enable targeted completion with packer seats while also repairing the damaged vertical section of casing in the Barnett.
Enventure's 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inch, 17 lb/ft ESeal Liner was installed in a Barnett Shale 3000 ft lateral wellbore to isolate existing perforations while allowing fracturing of new shale colume between old perforation clusters.
An operator's well in the Marcellus Shale developed a split in the horizontal section during the primary cement job. Pressure integrity needed to be restored before the operator could continue completing the well.
As part of a multi-well program, isolate severe water-thief zones in a field where squeezing, casing patches and dual packer isolation assemblies rarely worked. The solution increased production and ultimately resulted in higher reserves.
This casing failure occurred during the 13th stage of the well’s plug-&- perf frac job of it’s 4,500 ft lateral section. To avoid killing the well with potentially damaging weighted fluids, a rig assist snubbing unit was used to enable live-well operations including milling out the casing...
Results from two case histories in shale plays indicate that the use of an expandable refrac liner gives comparable, or better, gas production than other methods of perforation isolation, and provides assurance
for frac stage injectivity.
